Madison School Board to discuss gun violence and safety

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison School Board is expected to talk gun violence and safety during Monday night's meeting, in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Florida.

During a school board meeting on February 19th, school board member Kate Toews suggested putting an interior lock on every classroom door. The locks would allow teachers to secure their rooms from the inside, in case of an emergency.

Right now, most schools only have doors that lock with a key from the outside. But MMSD says it already has plans to install new locks on classroom doors by the end of the summer.

Before Monday night's meeting, some Madison School Board members, teachers, and students will urge Governor Walker and U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan to take action on passing common-sense gun reforms.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Doyle Administration Building on West Dayton Street.
